PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis invites Pope Francis to Greece

During a phone conversation with Pope Fancis on Wednesday, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis invited him to visit Greece when the circumstances allow it. The Pope has been invited to visit landmark sites of the early history of Christianity, “in the footsteps of Apostle Paul.”

Mitsotakis and Pope Francis spoke about the global challenge posed by the coronavirus pandemic.

According to a press release issued by the PM’s office, the Pope “recognized Greece’s great efforts” to protect the most vulnerable groups, such as refugees, and expressed regret about the lack of wider European support in relocating unaccompanied refugee minors.

Mitsotakis also discussed the government’s green policy, as environmental protection is an issue of interest both for Pope Francis and Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew.
